A New Hope: The Princess, the Scoundrel, and the Farm Boy by Alexandra Bracken
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A good introduction to the Galaxy Far, Far Away...
Bracken does a very nice translation of "A New Hope" into a well paced YA retelling. By shifting from Leia to Han to Luke, she gives a nice parallax (tri-parallax) of viewpoints. Using the movie and the radio drama as her starting point, this provides a nice entry point to Star Wars to a younger generation. No, no surprises if you know the story, but a good book all the same.
